The underlying power of TOC flows from its ability to generate a tremendously strong focus towards a single goal and to removing the principal impediment (the constraint) to achieving more of that goal.
In Partnership with:
6 months - 2 days a week
Organizations struggle to meet multiples challenges and objectives. Constant changes and improvements are in demand. It is possible to notice many efforts undertaken, but not within the achieved desired results. All areas of the companies are having local improvement projects such as in sales, marketing, operations, IT, finance, but these projects in isolation tend to achieve only small bottom-line results and their potential organizational improvement results impacts will be kept unknown and unexplored.
TOC methodologies are being widely applied to all sorts of organizational environments with transversal applicability.
To fill this gap FCT NOVA developed, in collaboration with Goldratt School, an International Executive Course Into Theory of Constraints (In2ToC), to support their efforts on the exploration of the highest impacts of their improvement management system efforts, providing with Goldratt School a unique approach based on the breakthrough philosophy of constraints management as introduced by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt in 1980s through his bestselling book ‘The Goal.’
This course is a complete course with the fundamentals of theory of constraints, its principles and application in real life. It covers all standard TOC applications (in thinking, operations, distribution, projects and finance) that are currently helping individuals/organizations across the globe to achieve great results. This course also briefly covers ‘Thinking Processes’ of TOC to build your own solutions and applications. The course does not only cover the theoretical aspect of TOC but also the practical application in real life. The principles and the decision making process to support management actions.
